Wingold Grange Dictionary Project

The Dictionary Project is a non-profit organization that raises money to buy dictionaries for third grade students in New Hampshire and throughout the country. Wingold Grange #308 is assisting with this project and has raised the money to buy dictionaries for all of the third grade students in the Brentwood, East Kingston, Kensington, Danville, Atkinson, Plaistow, Newton, Kingston, and South Hampton Elementary Schools. Although this was a five-year project, the East Kingston Grange continues to help students with this step in education. Since its implementation in 1995, over 18 million children have received dictionaries because thousands of people saw the same need in communities all over the United States. Receiving dictionaries at Plaistow's Pollard School, are from left, Joann Brandt, coordinator; Jaiden Kunharedt, Marjorie Burnett, Annika Smith, John Burnett, and Michele Vance, Pollard vice principal.

Successful Kick-Off

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Exeter/Epping had its kick-off event at The Rinks at Exeter to launch its fundraising efforts for the year. The event was a success, with a turnout of 78 people who participated in the public skate. Half of the proceeds of the public skate were donated to Relay For Life along with the proceeds from various raffles. Overall, $314.00 was raised at the event.

In addition to the money raised through the public skate and the raffles, Relay For Life of Exeter/Epping was also presented a check for $76.00 by fourth graders (shown above, from left) Meagan Rousseau and Katy Singlar of Exeter. The two girls made and sold ornaments to raise money for Relay For Life.  They are shown presenting the check to Susan Kennard, Event Chair, while Ashley Haseltine, Community Executive Development of the American Cancer Society, looks on.

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life a life-changing event that provides communities the opportunity to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. At Relay, teams of people camp out at a local school or park, and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events. Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their camp sites during Relay.

For those who were unable to attend, there is still plenty of time to join or form a team for Relay For Life of Exeter/Epping! Mark your calendar for the 2013 Relay For Life of Exeter/Epping scheduled for June 22-23 at Sanborn Regional High School. For more information about the Relay For Life of Exeter/Epping, please visit relayforlife.org/exeternh or call 1-800-227-2345.
